Directed by Deepak Kumar Mishra, the TVF original series talks about a village called Phulera and the issues that this place and its people face due to corruption and the lack of communication between the government and common people.
Speaking about keeping the title of the show Panchayat, the director said in a recent statement that he wanted to rejuvenate the viewers’ affection for classic shows such as Malgudi Days and Panchatantra that had the essence of small Village culture and relate that to reality.
He further added, "Panchayat’s name connects viewers to their motherlands."
Meanwhile, talking about the love and affection that Jitendra and this show have received, the protagonist mentioned in a recent statement that it was unexpected for him and along with the other cast and crew members, he was also overwhelmed with such a huge response.
Panchayat 2 also features Faisal Malik, Chandan Roy, Sanvika and Deepak Kumar, who will be reprising their characters from the first instalment along with others.
